You will find a 'How Too Change & Repair' the EHCS file if you go to the FILES section and search,attached by 'joegottberg' did a very good write up I also added my recent repair file. But if you only want too flush the Hydraulic fluid out follow his suggestions, but add the fluid till you hear the by-pass valve & stop. I recently did my EHCS and had the pot metal casting blow out & had a big repair (see attached) others have had the 'O' ring blow if you add too much hydraulic oil.
Hope you are successful in getting your EHCS repaired.
